Vegetables and fruit are expensive because, unlike grains and meat, they do not get subsidized by the government. ∠°)

Yes, some whole grain products are more expensive (bread, pasta), but you can offset this by buying cheap, healthy foods, like rolled oats (not instant- yuk!), generic cheerios or bran cereal (cheaper than sugar-laden cereal), beans, brown rice, milk, plain yogurt, eggs, peanut butter, frozen vegetables (better for you than fresh), fresh apples, bananas, lettuce, cabbage, and carrots. You're already saving money by not buying meat. Soy "milk" is expensive, it's not really milk at all and is loaded with sugar. I don't do "organic"-not worth the hugely inflated cost. Do you have an Aldi nearby? the ww bread is 99 cents, only a little more than the white, and the rest of their items are cheap too. .

I don't think it is at all. I buy bags of frozen veggies (16 oz) at Walmart for 1.00 each and dried beans, brown and whole wheat pasta pretty cheap as well.

Healthy foods are expensive because they are healthy. They are rare nowbdays so the price shoot up.

I'm guessing that if the demand for healthier eating were to go up then the prices would go down...so, for now :(

because garbage is extremely cheap most processed and packaged food is made from corn and soy, the government subsidizes corn and so its what a lot of farmers produce.

it is cheaper to produce crud. think out of the realms of food, shoddy furniture - cheaper. shoddy clothes - cheaper. so shoddy food - cheaper. if you can, even with just a small porch or landing, grow some of your own veggies. there are books at the library which could help you see how.
